About La Réserve
La Réserve has been created with passion and reverence for tradition, from hand-picked selection of some of Grover Zampa’s oldest Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz vines. Matured in new French oak barrels, the wine gains intense structure and complexity and the finish is exquisite: long and almost magical. La Réserve Blanc is elaborated vintage after vintage with the same zeal, uncompromised quality and respect for traditions. Hand – picked and bunch pressed selection of Viognier grapes from Grover Zampa’s best parcels at the vineyards are used to make this wine. It is fermented in barrels and then aged on lees in the barrel, gaining complexity, richness and a perfect balance.
